Art or Sound

Introduction by Germano Celant. Text by Jo Applin, Luciano Chessa, Chiara Costa, Christoph Cox, Geeta Dayal, Patrick Feaster, Christoph E. Hänggi, Bart Hopkin, Douglas Kahn, Alan Licht, Andrea Lissoni, Noel Lobley, Deirdre Loughridge, Mario Mainetti, Simone Menegoi, Holly Rogers, Jonathan Sterne, David Toop, John Tresch, Eric de Visscher, Rob Young. Preface by Miuccia Prada, Patrizio Bertelli.

"Lo-Tech Proposed" (2006-14) by Haroon Mirza is reproduced from <b><a href="9788887029567.html" target='new'>Art or Sound</a></b>.Art or Sound examines the rich overlap and areas of ambiguity between musical instruments and works of art. Looking at examples spanning the seventeenth century to the present, this gorgeously produced book, with its thick vinyl cover, offers a fascinating reinterpretation of the musical instrument and the ways in which it can become a sculptural-visual entity (and vice versa). It opens with instruments made from precious materials in the seventeenth century, eighteenth-century musical automata by Pierre Jaquet-Droz and various customized instruments from the Victorian and early modern eras. Research in the field of synesthesia is presented along with works from the historical avant-gardes, such as Luigi Russolo's celebrated Intonarumori (1913). Also included are scores by John Cage, works by Robert Morris and Nam June Paik, sound installations such as Robert Rauschenberg's Oracle (1962–65) and Laurie Anderson's Handphone Table (1978). Examples of artistic appropriations of musical instruments (by the likes of Arman, Richard Artschwager and Joseph Beuys) and hybrid instruments by Ken Butler and William T. Wiley are considered alongside the more recent research of artists such as Christian Marclay, Janet Cardiff, Martin Creed and Doug Aitken, and a younger generation, represented by Anri Sala, Athanasios Argianas, Haroon Mirza, Ruth Ewan and Maywa Denki, among others. Esteemed writers, musicians and scholars such as Christoph Cox, Douglas Kahn, Alan Licht, David Toop and Rob Young contribute contextualizing essays.

Art or Sound

Laurie Anderson's Numbers Runners (1979) is reproduced from Fondazione Prada's deluxe doorstopper, Art or Sound—a 520-page examination of works that lie on the boundary of visual art and sound production. "Numbers Runners is an altered public telephone booth. People enter the booth, lift the phone from its hook and hear two voices: Anderson's message on tape and their own words delayed by 3⁄4 of a second. By interacting with the public's input, the telephone booth enables the listener and Anderson to participate in a dialogue. Lapsed-time sequences had already been included in the musical performance New York Social Life (1977), for which Anderson alternates two distinct voices between telephone and microphone, performing the words very rapidly as one long run-on sentence. With this work the artist explores the performing potential of the telephone as a plastic artificial conductor of real relationships between people: '... the question is: Is the phone alive? What's alive and what doesn't have life?" continue to blog
